HOMEFRONT: “Duco” is where the war is.

Theme by OPTIMUS

Ok, mate, here is your theme!
There were few suitable images, but I think those I found are the official ones, at least…

Well, I don’t know if you’ll like my artistic choice, but… that’s what I’ve done:
first of all, I drew some mimetic textures (like the military uniforms) from which I created simple shaped icons, then I ruined them and I’ve soiled with blood.
As for the backgrounds, I wanted to emphasize the war atrocities told in the game by creating particular contrasts with light and dark, black and white, etc, and by making the images dirty (so, don’t worry if they seem grainy or stuff like that: it’s intentional… :P)
So, I separated images in 3 different categories:

1-NEWS (2 backgrounds) I created a paper effect, so that images seem to be taken straight from an old and ruined newspaper.

2-TV (2 backgrounds) I created a special effect with horizontal RGB lines, little dots and stripes, as if the images came from a disturbed local TV transmission.

3-REAL (2 backgrounds) I created effects like lighting and lens flare, so that it seems you’re right there watching the scenes with your own eyes.

The last background is an artwork that I preferred to leave as it is.

Well, hope you’ll like it, mate.
Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

YOOOO!! sup

OPTIMUS

Don’t mention it, bro!
Always a pleasure! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ok , hey thanks again ๐Ÿ˜€

OPTIMUS

Ok, mate: if you confirm the image is precisely the one I told you (the 3 soldiers shooting toward the right side) I will use that one for your theme ๐Ÿ˜‰

But, as I said, you’ll need to wait for a while…

its that one the 3 soldiers who are shooting toward the right side

mmm…i serch for Bad company 2 PS3 and then when you put the photos out on the left put large size

OPTIMUS

Thanks for your appreciation, mate! Well, don’t worry, I’ll see what I can do… Anyway, there are 2 problems: 1) when I click on the link you gave me, it keeps loading, but nothing appears. So, I searched on google, but I’m not sure the image I found is the same you linked… is it the “Bad Company 2” one which depicts the 3 soldiers who are shooting toward the right side of the screen??? 2) I can surely make the theme you requested, mate, but… you’ll have to wait for a while: I’m working on a theme which still… Read more »

yogosan: @kwazy, there is a bug in the theme builder that (correct me if iโ€™m wrong) sometimes, simply requires you to save the theme and then build it, i think so anyway, it hasnโ€™t happened me in a while. does the error occur during the compiling stage or does it not begin to compile at all? are you using sounds? sounds can definitely mess a theme up if the file size is too big. I don’t have any sounds, and yes, it happens during the compiling stage. But yeah I’ll see if saving the theme first works and if all… Read more »

@yogosan: Hey, mate! Welcome back to you too! What did you find in the Easter egg? ๐Ÿ˜€ Wow, I was just about to say that I hoped to see your GT5 theme these days… O_o Oh man… I do know you enough to understand what you mean, my friend: I know well your style, as well as I perfectly know how perfectionist you are, when it comes to make themes… that’s why I can safely say that no one would have been able to make better of what you showed me last time! Sure, it might be too generic (I… Read more »

Kwazy32: Hey OPTIMUS hows it going man. I know I havenโ€™t commented in a while, but thats because my computer blue-screened on me. Anyway I tried to make that theme, but everytime I would click on โ€œBuild Themeโ€, a message would pop up saying โ€œAn error has occurredโ€. Iโ€™m sure I had all the images the right size too, so I donโ€™t know what to do. But besides thatโ€ฆ Another Good Theme! Hey, mate! Thanks a lot! And… welcome back! Yep! Yogosan’s right: when building a theme, you have to pay attention to some things, especially if you’re using sounds…… Read more »

@OPTIMUS, uploaded that gt5 theme, long overdue and failed to live up to expectations, just like the game itself! some people might like it. that generic look it has drives me insane, when it comes to themes I really try to avoid that, since it was a gt5 theme i didnt feel like I had any other choice, it’s gt5 for christ sake! the most generic game in existence! thought I had all the right ingredients but in the end it didnt click at all. 2nd time thats happened for me, gt5 and uncharted 2, at least i uploaded this… Read more »

OPTIMUS

Thanks, bro, I appreciate! Whaaat? You got only my last 9 themes? And where are all my other ones?!? ๐Ÿ˜› Well… in theory, I should start the Doom theme for Doom, but I don’t really know what to do. That’s because, if you remember, he asked me to make this theme, but the other day he also asked to Devilush for a dynamic one: well, it doesn’t have much sense for me making a standard theme for someone who can get a dynamic one… I told him about this, and asked “what should I do?”, so… I’m waiting for an… Read more »
